“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Legislation was signed in 1983 which created a federal holiday observing the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service in 1994 and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with championing this effort. Each year on the third Monday of January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.” The MLK Day of Service is a part of the President’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve. This initiative calls for all Americans to work together to provide solutions to our national problems. This day empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and helps move us closer to one of Dr. King’s visions, a “Beloved Community.”
